Inquirer Columnist Trudy Rubin to Speak to Bar Members Nov. 2

The Public Interest Section and the Civil Rights Committee of the Philadelphia Bar Association are sponsoring a Chancellor’s Forum with Philadelphia Inquirer “Worldview” columnist Trudy Rubin on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at the Bar headquarters, 1101 Market St., 11th Fl. at noon.

Rubin’s book, Willful Blindness, The Bush Administration and Iraq, describes how the Bush administration got the U.S. into Iraq and the prospects for getting out. This book, a collection of Rubin’s columns from 2002 to 2004, draws on her extensive experience in the Middle East, including four lengthy trips to Iraq and her close contacts with Iraqi officials, clerics and ordinary people.

The event is free, but RSVP is required.
